Embarkation was easy. Cabin key obtained on boarding. Luggage arrived quickly in cabin.
Cabin compact. Small window just above water level. Kept clean. Head of bed only 10 inches from en-suite door. En-suite very compact. Plenty of storage space. Had to ask for bottled water to be replenished on 2nd day. Otherwise tea and coffee available.
Dining not 5 stars as expected. Beware don’t get drinks package as only offered cheap house wine. Food and wine not as advertised. Service was slow. Ship appeared very short of staff. Coffee was poor quality, Earl grey tea was available after speaking to cruise manager.
Excursions were well planned. Visited various towns along the Rhine. Lots of castles viewed while cruising. Went through 12 locks which was fascinating but did cause delays reaching ports.
Disembarkation straight forward, but left at station with luggage for several hours.
Holiday was run by Great Rail Journeys. Would not recommend.
Would do another river cruise, as only 152 passengers no long queues boarding or disembarking for excursions.
Very compact, did not spend much time there so was adequate.
Good excursion, walking tour of town followed my coach tour through Black Forest.
Coach to Hoorn. Views of countryside and pumping stations. Views Station train and carriages in Hoorn. Was on train for 1 1/2 hours. Great fun. Then coached back to ship.View All undefined undefined Reviews
